by employers were looking for those euros. the crowd funding legislation which will help young entrepreneurs get access to net capital and create jobs something i hope the sec will immediately come up with a rule so these people can start creating jobs and raising money. legislation to reform wall street. when i was the deciding vote to strengthen our country's financial system legislation to eliminate and owners 3% withholding tax, a tax that would affect government contractors. legislation to ensure that our fallen heroes received the dignity and respect they raised deserve at the arlington national cemetery and that is something now that is also fixed and many many other congressional actions that have made a difference not only in massachusetts but in this great country. these were all shared successes but i was proud to be part of each and every one of them. i have always said that in order to do our business as our country's leaders, we must do our work in a bipartisan bicameral manner to ensure that the actions taken by the congress benefit all americans, not just those of one politic

is the country, remember, that started all of these euro headaches and there's more problems here in january. mass transit strike now in its 8th day. subways, buses, snarling traffic in athens and elsewhere. the workers are protesting salary cuts which have been put in place by the government, again part of austerity moves there. the government today stepping in, branding the strikes illegal and threatening to throw those workers into jail. that is causing more problems with the unions. greece, too, martha, is showing some gains. they're reducing their deficit but again, with more problems. as well, a desperate economic situation in greece. it's got people organizing, bartering systems because they have no more cash. and it is driving extremists to more violence. just in the past week, a shopping mall in athens hit by a many toing. another year, martha. martha: rough stuff. greg, thank you. bill: changing of the guard only moments away from a senate confirmation hearing for senator john kerry, the man expected to be our next secretary of state. we're live in washington. guess who will be in

. these are all measured in dollars. when there is a sense of crisis in the currency, whether they are euros or dollars, large investors are looking for their value. where is their value out there? where can they put their currencies? if you look back to 2008 -- that was when we saw the first major spike in the price of global food. we saw a sense that we cannot want to put money in equities. real estate was tanking. the debt market was tanking. where do we put all of this cash we are sitting on? in commodities. a bunch of academic studies came out same commodities were a legitimate form of asset allocation. instead of just putting our money in stocks and bonds and mutual funds, now you will see a lot of money managers allocating assets into commodities. this is only possible through newfangled derivatives through wall street, electronically traded funds. that is the way food becomes an asset in your portfolio. the problem is that those asset allocations and those newfangled derivatives have an inflationary effect on the price of food globally. host: here is the first call for you from georg
